About Us

In 2010 the Spirit Racing Team was born. The academy race team  known for 2022 as Spirit BSS has steadily progressed and grown substantially in the subsequent years. We are now firmly established as one of the strongest elite amateur teams in the UK and Europe. 2022 will be our second year as a British Cycling Elite Development Team


We are well set to continue this upward trend in 2022 and we hope you enjoy supporting us along the road.


We will have an extremely talented team with twelve male elite riders along with support volunteers and helpers. Our race calendar will be extremely strong and the best of any UK based team going forward incorporating UCI Europe Tour events and prestigious races with our friends at Cycling Ireland plus the UK National Series and Televised (ITV4) Tour Series.

The projects key focus continues on developing riders in the sport of cycling and also mentoring, whilst providing the platform to compete in the UK's biggest races and the invites we receive in the UCI Europe, Asia, African Tours and Cycling Ireland. These will include the current UK Elite Road Series and Elite circuit series. With our impressive race calendar, we will equip riders to race at all levels and give them the platform and shop window and scouted. We have to move one or two onto the bigger pro Continental teams in time, with the ultimate prize of gaining a World Tour contract or our model has failed.

​As a Brand Ambassador for our sponsors and a solid base for up-and-coming future stars Spirit BSS continues to surpass all our targets year on year with a small budget in comparison to our peers. At the heart of our ethos is a strong work ethic, with the emphasis being on team bonding, fun and development throughout the season. ​We win and will continue to exceed our expectations whilst growing as a formidable team with a model that ensures our future year on year.


We are well set to continue this upward trend in 2022 and we hope you enjoy supporting us along the road.
